Porsche 911 is “high-performance athlete”

The new Porsche 911 GT2 has been described by the firm behind it as a "high-performance athlete" and a tempting purchase with a number of features on the special edition.

Scheduled to hit the UK market in November, the updated Porsche 911 GT2 is blessed with a manual six-speed gearbox and rear-wheel drive, while also coming equipped with a 50-bhp increase in engine power from the previous 911 Turbo vehicle.

Other luxury touches include tailpipes and a rear silencer constructed from titanium, which works to reduce the weight of the parts by about 50 per cent.

Vital stats for the GT2 see the acceleration clock in at zero to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds, with a maximum speed of 204 mph.

However, those concerned about their eco-friendly conscience might be interested to know that the average fuel consumption – 22.6 miles per gallon – is said by Porsche to represent a level of fuel economy previously thought impossible for this type of vehicle.

Prices are expected to start at £131,070.

Porsche, which is a German manufacturer, currently offers a number of models in its range including the Boxster and the Cayman.
